Keynote: Innovation & the Knowledge EcosystemThere are three necessary preconditions to innovation: starvation (or scarcity, perhaps need—a shortage of resources where usually there is abundance), pressure (or urgency—an immediate and relentless demand for resolution of the scarcity—a changing world), and perspective shift (new ways of thinking about the problem). We know that libraries are a part of the knowledge ecosystem but how can they be more innovative so they are recognized as having an impact on that knowledge ecosystem? How can they help others innovate more? And how can libraries gain new perspectives and types of thinking? Our popular speaker will challenge your thinking and supply some interesting insights.

Keynote Panel: Executive Perspectives of the Library Tech Industry
Marshall Breeding leads the discussion among a panel of executives from key companies which provide or support strategic technologies for libraries. These executives represent organizations with a mix of strategic perspectives, including those that develop library management platforms, discovery services, content and technology products, and open source development and support. Following a brief introduction, Breeding facilitates a lively discussion probing the technology and business trends currently in play, including industry consolidation, differing approaches to opening software to library programmers, and the shift toward cloud-based technologies.

Keynote: Libraries & Perpetual LearningNearly three-quarters of Americans describe themselves as “lifelong learners.” More than two-thirds learn for personal enrichment and enjoyment. More than half are professional learners who are anxious to upgrade their skills and prepare for the next-wave workforce. Rainie presents new survey findings about the vast numbers of Americans who want and need to learn things and how libraries fit into their experiences and expectations. He discusses how digital resources inside and outside the library are crucial for many people and what that means for the ways librarians should think about serving these knowledge-society citizens.
